My latest obsession.

I love salt.

I love Himalayan salt.

And yes… you can taste a difference.

I got a “raise” with my Essential Oils business last month and so to treated myself I ordered a much wanted Himalayan Salt Block from Amazon.  I could not be happier.

Happiness is new kitchen gadgets after all – right?

I have my

Himalayan Salt Block proudly displayed in my kitchen and I finally got around to using it.

Now, I can’t stop.

OK – so that’s a gross picture.  Raw meat.  Come on.

You will need:

One Himalayan salt block (this is the exact one I have)

(And I highly recommend this cookbook!)

One pound of hamburger (recipe can be double, tripled…)

1/2 cup feta cheese

1 egg (beaten)

Crushed pepper to taste

Chopped herbs from the garden

Begin by SLOWLY heating your salt block on the stove top.  15 minutes per setting.  So that means 15 minutes on low, 15 minutes on medium and 15 minutes on high and then it will be ready to use.  Don’t forget… IT’S HOT!  And you HAVE to heat it slowly or else it will crack.

Mix up all your ingredients and shape your patties.  Place them directly on the salt block and cook until the reach your desired done-ness.

That’s it.  It’s not mysterious.  It’s just delicious.

I followed mine up with some sautéed onions… grilled on the salt block of course.

To clean your salt block simply scrape off the leftovers and rinse it off and pat it dry.  So easy!!!!

Oh — I have more up my sleeve where this is concerned but I just had to share this with you!

Bon Weekend!

    You inspired me. I just ordered one for my sister’s birthday gift. She’s a great cook. Hopefully, this will be an exciting addition to her kitchen tools. 🙂

    Thanks Angela, I am so excited to learn to use this. I am so bored in the kitchen right, maybe this will give me some cooking fun.

    I am not a grill chef whatsoever. What do you recommend if I wanted to cook this on the grill with the salt block?

    I have several different sizes salt blocks. How long did you cook your burgers, and did you flip them?
